Gotcha, did they say why the forks break a lot?

The forks have these little metal nubs on each side to give some direction to the shifter. They get worn down and putting the car in gear becomes more vague.

Speaking of which, I got my car back. It's a joy to shift like never before. I ended up replacing all 6 syncros. The weren't all bad but better safe than sorry. They're like $80 each, might as well put in new ones when you already got the whole thing apart.

Rallispec worked out well. They're a good shop for those in the area. Just don't trust the answering machine

I haven't found a mechanic who checks their messages more than once a week (if that) yet.
